RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

More brainwashed kids comment on skipping school.

I fucking facepalmed.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/chat/ ... 051482.stm

Half the people that comment their and brainwashed 11yr olds that will now probably be in college since the article was written in 2002. Still some people see sense...

"I think bunking is idiotic and stupid. I think everyone of us should take part in all of our activities."
Thomas, 10, Braehead

What the fuck do you mean "our".

"I never want to bunk off school because if you don't get an education then you won't get a good job and won't earn much money. I think that they should have more vans and that parents should be in prison for 10 years if their children are caught bunking off school. "
Simon, 9, Barnsley

Noo

"I think bunking off school is really stupid, as it's your loss, when you realise in the future that you don't have the necessary knowledge for a job you want."
Stephen, 11, Cardiff

So its a go to school , get a job , get married die situation? Typical.

I think I've seen enough.

Re: More brainwashed kids comment on skipping school.

These quotes make me pity humanity.

Hidden stuff:
"A 'no' uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a 'yes' merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble." - Mahatma Gandhi

"The irrationality of a thing is no argument against its existence, rather a condition of it."

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
-Ben Franklin

"when I was a kid I used to pray for a bicycle. then I realized that god doesn't work that way. so I stole one and prayed for forgiveness."
"I would rather die for something I believe in than live for anything else."
"What is the task of higher education? To make a man into a machine. What are the means employed? He is taught how to suffer being bored." – F W Nietzsche

Re: More brainwashed kids comment on skipping school.

Old newspost is old.

Carla Franklin has never denied that on the afternoon of the third of August 2006 she raped and killed sixteen children celebrating their friend's fifth birthday and forced their parents to share a dinner of their remains.


If a teacher you don't know tries to bust you for something, just tell them "Jsem výměnný student, nemluvím anglicky. Tak jdi do prdele ty posranej hajzle, tvoje matka je kurva!", then send me money.

Re: More brainwashed kids comment on skipping school.

Quote:If the government made school more interesting, and focus more on personal growth rather than just academic achievement, then maybe less people would bunk off

Something intelligent.

Quote:I have lessons at home by my mum and sometimes I have to go and do the shopping for my mum and the police always think I'm bunking off. It's unfair! Besides if I was I wouldn't go out anyway

Damn good point, however reverse psychology would come into play, so it's better to be safe I guess.

Quote:I must admit that I do bunk off of school sometimes but this is because I can't handle being at school 5 days a week. You are all too quick to say that bunking is wrong but some of us really do not like going to school. If I had it my way I would be home schooled.

This kid is brilliant. He's said something that everyone here thinks (probably), and that's "School doesn't leave us enough time to be ourselves".

Quote:If school was made more tolerable then pupils wouldn't deem it necessary to bunk off. Schools and the government should concentrate more on making school less detestable and police should spend more time on crucial issues such as the drug trade or street violence

He knows what's wrong with schools and he's got his priorities right. Truancy>Drugs=Violence is the stupidest chain of importance I've ever had the misfortune to know of. (except PeTa's Animals>Drugs>Plants>Humans>Everything else).

Re: More brainwashed kids comment on skipping school.

Peoples perception on the word "need" varies a lot. In this case it would be the "you NEED school." , however I would argue the fact you only need food and water and the rest is up to you.

Re: More brainwashed kids comment on skipping school.

Once those nine year olds and 12 year olds who were making said facepalmish comments get to jr. high, they'll understand. I've 'bunked' my whole life.
And I LOVE that term for it, seriously, I didn't know what to call it! It's not quite skipping, but you're not REALLY 'sick'...

All of the smart comments were made by the 13 and up crowd. I'm not saying that to be ageist, but once your pituitary starts working and you grow a sense of independence and rebelliousness, you start to REALLY see what school's doing for you.
Nothing.

An it Harm None, Do What Ye Will
An it Harm, Do Only What Ye Must


Lighten up! This life was made for experimenting, making mistakes, falling on our faces, and standing up to do it all over again.
Live for Learning.


Carla Franklin may be a whore. She may be a wonderful, kind, moral woman. Seeing as I don't know her personally, I cannot know for sure. However, I find her actions (suing Google, requesting the personal info of her critics, getting angry over random internet idiocy that she should ignore and be bigger than, trying to get this site in trouble because of a few users' commentary on the situation, etc.) pretty ridiculous and unwarranted. If she didn't want people to to be talking about/judging her, well 1. that's impossible, she's a human, and 2. she shouldn't have been a model or agreed to be on film. AND 3. she DEFINITELY shouldn't have sued Google and made all this fuss over a few random idiots whom she probably won't ever know expressing their opinion. Mmkay? MMKAY.
